Abstract/Description: "The choice of Sidney Howard as the subject of this paper was frankly determined by the fact that this writer has, over the past several years, developed a considerable interest in twentieth century American drama. Howard presents a particularly interesting case, for his more serious and well thought-out plays rank with the better realistic dramas of his time, while the less conscientious efforts show a relationship to the immature playwriting of the previous generation. Whether or not Howard alone would be considered a cardinal figure in the development of the American drama might be open to question. Nevertheless, it may be safely said that he played a part of considerable importance in the maturing process through which our drama went during the third and fourth decades of the twentieth century"--Introduction.
